The Neologos project is a speech database creation project for the French language, resulting from a collaboration between universities and industrial companies and supported by the French Ministry of Research. The goal of Neologos is to re-think the design of the speech databases in order to enable the development of new algorithms in the field of speech processing. A general method is proposed to optimize the database contents in terms of diversity of the recorded voices, while reducing the number of recorded speakers.
